Banner To The Future

The banner reaches completion - we have achieved the successful integration of all the component parts!

The backing is now stitched on. All that is now required is for a few curtain weights to be stitched on to the back, and to find some kind of canal-related hanging device, such as a barge pole, from which it can hang during the exhibition. The names of all the stitchers who took part and the date will also be added to the back, for posterity.


Liz's canal bridge...

Joan's lock...

Mary's narrow boat inspired painted roses...

Diana's cogs...

Gillian's fish...

Claire's bulrushes...

The velvet lettering...

The central motif of Montgomery canal gearing...
The banner will be exhibited from 16th December 2016 until Christmas at Powysland Museum, Welshpool, alongside an exhibition of prints by Eric Gaskell. Please do come along and see it.
